When you become a member of the University, your e-mail address is automatically entered as a recipient into some mailing lists. This allows the University to contact you with important information if necessary. To prevent unnecessary e-mails being sent to everyone at the University, only very few individuals have permission to send to these mailing lists. After you leave the University, you may continue to receive these e-mails, but you will eventually be automatically removed from the list.

Unsubscribing

It is not possible to manually unsubscribe from these mailing lists. The automatic mailing lists are populated with new and changed employee/student information every night. For employees, as soon as your employment is terminated in the HR database, you will no longer receive these e-mails. Letter of Appointments are kept in the list for 120 days after their primary job ends.

If you feel that these mailing lists no longer apply to you in any way, please e-mail unr_unsubscribe@lists.unr.edu.

How do they know my e-mail address?

Depending upon your affiliation with the University, your e-mail address is pulled from one of two databases. If you update your e-mail address on file, it may take a day or two for the mailing list system to recognize the change.

Students

Your e-mail address is pulled from PeopleSoft, which drives the MyNEVADA system. Students should ensure that the e-mail address on file is accurate by logging into MyNEVADA and checking that the e-mail address is up-to-date. It is also important that your e-mail address is correct in WebCampus.

Faculty/Staff

Employees of the University have their e-mail address pulled from the Human Resources database. To update your e-mail address, please use the Employee Self-Service system to make any changes.

Students remain subscribed to these mailing lists from the time they've accepted their admission until they have not attended for an entire major term (Spring/ Fall) or for 6 months after they graduate.

Removal from this mailing list is determined by the rules set for the individual mailing lists that make up the recipients for this list.

Building Lists

The facilities department has automatically generated mailing lists for the occupants of each building on campus. This allows them to send announcements relating to work being carried out in specific areas of the University. The occupant list is generated from the information found for each employee in the Human Resources database. More information on the building mailing lists can be found on the Facilities department's website.

provost_

These lists include all non-temporary Academic and Administrative Faculty. Each recipient is assigned to the appropriate College/Division list according to the College/ Division designation in their primary job.
